A new opinion poll shows that Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams' satisfaction rating has dropped by 6 points in the past month.

The Behaviour and Attitudes Poll in this Sunday's Sunday Times indicates that the Sinn Féin TD's rating has fallen back to 32 points.

The poll was taken during extensive coverage of the 1983 IRA shooting of Brian Stack, on which Gerry Adams made a Dáil statement.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny is on 33 points, up 1 point since last month's survey.

Fianna Fail's Michéal Martin is the country's most popular political leader on 50 points, with Labour's Brendan Howlin on 39.
